Figured out how to get the Mike Inez tone without buying all his gear. Luckily he likes to keep it simple so he doesn't use an extensive effects chain. So if you want the tone without buying a 3 thousand dollar bass try this out. I use a hartke LH 500 base head in a rack, through a compressor and a BBE sonic maximizer and run it through a Ampeg SVT classic 610. I keep my eq pretty much flat. My key to getting the tone is using light gauge Blue steel bass strings and using my BP80 pedal.. All you need is some sparkle overdrive which you can get with the BP80, voodo labs sparkle overdrive or any other sparkle overdrive pedal. The key really is the strings and overdrive together and boost your mids a bit. try it and let me know I had amazing results!
